Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

I finished City of Night , The Stand...

Also I read Santa fe Edge and I finished LOTR. I took out a few library books in between but now I’m reading mine.

I’m reading Blaze now and will read 11/22/63 soon.

I liked City of Night but I loved The Stand.

I finished Dark Matter , Return of the King , Mostly Harmless,

Misery , The Claiming of Sleep Beauty and Moby Dick.

Favorite of the bunch Misery.

This is taking forever

finished Theodore Boone, The Regulators, Dracula , Dark Matter and Carrie.

Theodore was interesting though it's a YA book. Dracula is worth reading though it's hard to under stand. Dark was alright.

Another 4 down

finished Prodigal Son , The best of H. P. Lovecraft, Hellraiser Vol. 1 and The Colorado Kid.

Finished Mr. X , Misery

The Appeal and I’m in the of In Odd we Trust. Will probably read Rhapsody next.

finished another book shelf with...

Lolita , the last 2 Dark Tower books (1st series I read with that many books), High on Arrival And am finishing up Rules of Prey and the 3 Stooges Book. Also I finished Forever Odd.

This goal is taking much longer than I thought.

Lolita isn’t the easiest book to read but it’s not that long so if your looking for a classic might as well try it.

next month

I’m not taking out any library books . Will definitely make progrss on my collection. It’s still probably close to 200 but slowly chipping away.

coming up hopefully by Thanksgiving or sooner

Odd Forever , Dark Tower 7 & 8 and Hellbound Heart, short stories countiued to Hellbound Hearts (stories inspired by the Hellraiser universe).

another 4 down

I finally finished Christine (boy it would be cool to own a possesed car) and Queen of the Damned . Also the Dick van Dyke book, I would defintely recommend it, and Still Dead.

I finished Happy Accidents (definitely worth reading if you like Glee or even just like Jane Lynch)

Dark Half and started Queen of the Damned (the 1st and 2 seemed better,but still worth reading. I started Christine and in the middle of Book of the Dead 2. Next up will be Rules of Prey and probably Dimiter by the end of this month or early next month.
